Roam with MetroPCS

Roam with MetroPCS

Flat-rate carrier MetroPCS joined the modern cell phone era today when it announced it would now offer roaming services to its customers. TravelTalk, as the new service is dubbed, will enable MetroPCS subscribers to use their phone in major U.S. cities outside their home area. Roaming will cost between 49 and 79 cents per minute depending on the calling area. Calls will be free, however, when roaming in other MetroPCS markets.

The carrier also announced that it has added Detroit as its eighth urban market. Motown joins the carrier's existing roster of cities, which includes Miami; Tampa; Sarasota, Florida; Atlanta; San Francisco; Dallas; and Sacramento. Now in its fourth year, MetroPCS says it has more than 2 million subscribers.
